Do you want to effect change in our society? In preparation for the 2020 presidential election, we have selected four books related to civic-mindedness.
Topics to be explored are the current global political climate, voting rights and history in the United States, inequalities in the political and economic systems, and alternatives for our future.
Join facilitator Sarah Broderick and your neighbors to address the issues.
Sarah Broderick works as a writer, editor, creative writing instructor, and part-time assistant at the Mill Valley Public Library. She is a rotating editor at The Forge Literary Magazine and served as Diaspora Editor for Lavil: Life, Love, and Death in Port-au-Prince.
